Celebrating World Oceans Day and Rasing Fund to Rebuild
“Zero Waste to Oceans Education and Demonstrations Center”
Sawangan, Nusa Dua, June 08th 2017

1. Background of World Oceans Day

World Oceans Day takes place every June 8. It has been celebrated unofficially since its original proposal in 1992 by Canada’s International Centre for Ocean Development (ICOD) and the Ocean Institute of Canada (OIC) at the Earth Summit – UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Brundtland Commission, i.e. the World Commission on Environment and Development, provided the inspiration for a global oceans day.

The 1987 Brundtland Report noted that the ocean sector lacked a strong voice compared to other sectors. At the first world Oceans Day in 1992, the objectives were to move the oceans from the sidelines to the centre of the intergovernmental and NGO discussions and policy and to strengthen the voice of ocean and coastal constituencies world wide.

Why ROLE Foundation celebrate World Oceans Day?

  • ROLE Foundation want to remind everyone of the major role the oceans have in everyday life. They are the lungs of our planet, providing most of the oxygen we breathe.
  • ROLE Foundation want to inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean.
  • ROLE Foundation want to develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean.
  • ROLE Foundation want to mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world’s oceans. They are a major source of food and medicines and a critical part of the biosphere.
  • ROLE Foundation want to celebrate together the beauty, the wealth and the promise of the ocean.

2. Debate and Networking

On the Day we celebrate World Oceans Day, June 08th, in Role Foundation Eco Park , Sawangan Nusa Dua, there are two teams for debate. Before the debate starting Bali WISE student performing a song, playing game and dancing. When the debate is over, everyone enjoying themselves with finger food and beverages also building a networking time.

The two team debate about Will the people, jobs and business survive the next 30 – 100 years?

Pro (Team Captain – Jeroen):

  1. Government is being more active and with the new president and ministry of Indonesia there’s hope for a change on the environment.
  2. As what the Diveathon is about, we see that Diver / dive center are trying to help by picking up the waste in the ocean, saving coral reefs and more
  3. The main problem is littering, if everyone stop littering this problem wouldn’t event exist. Government needs to be more strict with their laws, begin a massive ads campaign on waste and shame those who litter.
  4. We see on the new initiatives by Bali teenager, Malu Dong Buang Sampah Sembarangan (Shame on You for throwing thrash not in the right place) and One Island One Voice. That youth movement is very effective, they are gathering more people joined up the initiatives, they have their first massive event and it was a success.
  5. By switching from our everyday use of transportation to a more eco friendly way such as electric car, electric bike or any transportation that use Solar System (powered by sun). We can reduce the carbon waste that are going into our air and stop pollution and diseases that are in fact cause by it.
  6. One NGO are trying to make their own motorcycle, but instead of using plastic and metal as the body part, they used bamboo instead. It’s way sustainable and would easily be recycled, unlike the plastic body we use nowdays.
  7. The Newly Dengue vaccines is working and will save thousand of life

Negative (Team Captain – Madi):

  1. Oxygen will be finished in about 40 years time max, most of the oksigen on earth are produced by coral and our coral is dying because of the waste and pollution in the ocean.
  2. Our Government seems to be more interested in infrastructure rather than saving the planet.
  3. Education only won’t help the earth. There’s need to be more actions.
  4. Enforcing the government to more active in saving the environment, Money are always the key into several problem, it could be good or bad. And with money, we might enforce our government in being more aware of the problem
  5. With the corruption going on right now, I don’t think there’s not much we can do.
  6. Toxic fume leads to cancer, and all the waste which are not consider as home for mosquito are causing dengue fever. Humanity is dying.
  7. A lot of sickness and hazard are cause by waste, a lot of company who are dumping their waste illegally doesn’t really care.

The Green Room Seminyak

Business in Bali has always been a good move, who wouldn’t want to work on an island? With beautiful beaches, friendly locals and such a variety of food it’s as close to paradise as you can get. However, Bali still faces a massive waste problem. Few businesses are taking serious action to fight the daily battle against unnecessary waste, the environment not being a current priority for their business. The Green Room Bali thinks differently.

A surfer’s paradise, The Green Room Bali, offers anyone the best experience to catch waves whether you’re a beginner or have been surfing since you can remember. With camps strategically located in four areas around the island (Canggu, Seminyak, Bukit and Serangan), the facilities of The Green Room Bali are guaranteed to provide a successful surf experience if swell permits.

Having met the representative for The Green Room Bali at their surf camp in Seminyak, I was able to have a tour and see all the sustainable products that are being used throughout the camp. To help reduce plastic in the community, staff and guests are asked to use environmentally friendly cloth bags and refillable bottles (which can be filled at the camp). Plastic straws are a big problem in Bali, to combat this issue only bamboo or glass straws are used throughout the camp restaurants.

After the tour I was given a fresh watermelon juice by a member of staff to try. Uniquely served with the signature glass straw and piece of watermelon, there was nothing better to quench my thirst in this hot weather.

It’s clear that at The Green Room they are very concerned about Bali’s environment. Seeing people discard their trash from car windows or simply throwing it into a nearby river appals those that work here at the surf camps. Surfers are always in the water and knowing that their guests will be out in ocean around Bali where the trash eventually ends up puts a downer on things.  No one likes to see trash in the ocean, especially the surfing community, and with more and more drifting into the surrounding ocean The Green Room is doing as much as they can to not add to this problem.

Fresh Juices from The Green Room Bali

The future of these surf camps depends on the ocean. The more trash, the less surfers will want to travel to Bali for waves. No one wants to catch their first wave through trash, let alone paddle out in it. The team here at The Green Room are supporting ROLE Foundation for a better future on the island of Bali, not just for them, but for everyone.

Be a part of The Green Room Bali CSR program and support the ROLE Foundation by purchasing a refillable bottle. For every bottle that is purchased, The Green Room Bali will donate 1 Euro to the ROLE Foundation Environmental and Clean Ocean Program.

For more information about their program and camps head to their website at www.thegreenroombali.com

Thank you to The Green Room Bali for supporting our program at ROLE Foundation for a better future toward Bali’s environment!

Zero Waste to Oceans Conference Banner

ROLE Foundation’s fresh facility hosted a “Zero Waste to Oceans” Conference, in conjunction with The Danish Embassy of Jakarta, with an exceptional turnout of 150 knowledgeable and passionate people.

The conference kick off with 6 minute introduction video, produced by Fay Moffat, sponsored by the Danish Embassy in Indonesia. This video shows some very graphic and sad underwater and beach footage of the massive solid and liquid waste damage to sea life, reefs, waterways and beaches. It also shows the hard work of the One Island One Voice Bali wide clean up, and other positive work being done by many across Bali. (Check the video here)

Willem Loots

Our witty MC, Mr. Willem Loots.

Then the very witty M.C. Willem Loots kicked off with some very interesting facts, like how 72% of our Mother Earth is covered in water, and how 150 millions tons of waste has already been dumped into our oceans, with this figure growing fast. He also commented on how beautiful the view of the oceans across Nusa Dua to Nusa Penida and on to Lombok. Do we want to loose all this? he asked.

Casper Klynge, Ambassador of Denmark.

Then Casper Klynge, the Ambassador of Denmark, who put up the funding for the conference spoke. He announced Denmark’s extreme concern for the health of our oceans, the need to partner up with our friends Indonesia through positive help with this waste struggle and his personal concern about what exactly we are handing over to our children, and our children’s children.

Next Mr Efansjah, the Senior Advisor to the Indonesian Minister of the Environment and Forestry Siti Nurbaya

Mr Efansjah, the Senior Advisor to the Indonesian Minister of the Environment and Forestry

Next Mr Efansjah, the Senior Advisor to the Indonesian Minister of the Environment and Forestry Siti Nurbaya, who is the retired CEO of WWF, Indonesia, expressed his concerns. He talked about positive steps being taking by the Indonesian Government, and how he takes to heart everybody’s, both Indonesians and foreigners concern about this huge marine waste problem. He also talked about how 80% of jobs in Bali directly or indirectly depend on tourism. Then emphasized that Tourism must have a healthy environment to survive. “That is why people come to Indonesia’s 17,000 islands. because they are so beautiful.”

 

ROLE Foundation CEO Mike O'Leary

ROLE Foundation CEO Mike O’Leary

Next the Danish Embassy’s, Jakarta sponsored Viral Video was announced. The winner is Ms Retno’s from Bogor, Java Island. Her very clever video was shown on the 4 TV screens. Retno receives IDR 10 million in prizes, with a trip to Bali for Earth Day celebrations, hotel accommodation and spending money all included. This Viral Video is a strong push to engage with our youth to get involved. Again sponsored by the Danish Embassy, Jakarta. The idea was very fruitful and popular among Indonesian youth with many high quality short videos received.

This was followed by a panel of doers.

Rili Djohani, the Director of Coral Triangle Center

Rili Djohani, the Director of Coral Triangle Center

Rili Djohani, the Director of Coral Triangle Center, said they are fighting hard through education, awareness and assistance to preserve the remaining coral reefs throughout Indonesia. Solid Waste is a huge challenge for them.

Piet van Zyl

Piet van Zyl who has turned every Alila Resort in Bali into a Zero Waste to Land Fill Hotel

Piet van Zyl who has turned every Alila Resort in Bali into a Zero Waste to Land Fill Hotel and who is helping Role Foundation build and make it’s Zero Waste to Oceans Research, Education and Demonstration Center for Local Council training and implementation. With 850 Banjars and 280 Desa (all local Councils) in Bali, we have our work cut out for us. Piet’s message is to all business on Bali, Indonesia and beyond. Alila Resorts can do Zero Waste to Landfill, so can your business. Don’t get left behind. Smart businesses are leading the way in waste management and are gaining customers, making local staff feel proud about their work, and the health of the environment thrives. Win, Win, Win.

Ketut Mertaadi from Eco Bali Recycling

Ketut Mertaadi from Eco Bali Recycling

Ketut Mertaadi from Eco Bali Recycling fame, disgusted how his company is a trusted transporter, recycler and educator of waste management. He said Governments are reaching out for assistance across Indonesia. With Eco Bali’s professional recycling facility, on the ground waste pick up and recycling, Eco Bali are in a good position to educate and train as they have the hands on know how. Trust is everything in this business. When people pay to get their waste picked up, they want to know it is handled properly. People trust Eco Bali, and that is important.

Kevin Kumala from Avani Cassava Starch Bags

Kevin Kumala from Avani Cassava Starch Bags

Kevin Kumala spoke about his company Avani’s cassava starch bags, and other items, that looked like real plastic bags, and do the same job as plastic bags, but are 100% organic and compostable. He drew the attention of the crowd when he drank down part of one of his cassava starch bags after mixing it with warm water.  He talked how research and production of alternative organic product is vital to a healthy future of our oceans.

Melati Wijen from Bye Bye Plastic Bags

Melati Wijen from Bye Bye Plastic Bags

And last the young favorite from Bye Bye Plastic Bags, 16 year old Melati Wijen discussed how her generation felt about this massive waste problem, that today’s youth will inherit. She said she does not understand why everything can not be manufactured with recycling in mind. She spoke about how the youth need to be engaged on this important subject. Melati is speaking at the World Oceans Summit, at Nusa Dua, Bali on the 23nd and 24th February.

Question and Answer time was very interesting with wide and varied questions from the very passionate crowd.

Network went on for hours, with the realization that we need everyone and all to beat this problem. Every idea, action, education, awareness, assistance. It need not be perfect, just heading in the right direction.

Bali WISE Students Intake 31
